The Library is situated at the heart of the school where it supports and enhances learning across the curriculum. The aims of the Library are to promote reading for enjoyment, thereby encouraging pupils to become independent learners and individuals who will develop a lifelong reading habit.
The library is open from 8:30am until 5.00pm, Monday to Friday, and is supervised at all times. Pupils are free to use the library during breaks and lunchtimes and also have the option to attend Prep sessions after school.
In addition to the extensive collection of both fiction and non-fiction titles, there are four networked PCs for pupil use.
In Key Stage 3 pupils have timetabled library lessons and for both KS3 and KS4 pupils there are a number of opportunities for extra-curricular activities through the Library, including reading groups, participation in local and national book awards, and a pupil librarian programme.
